HC Deb 05 July 1971 vol 820 c267W
Mr. Pavitt

asked the Secretary of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs what were the fees paid under overseas aid provisions in each of the last three years for one-year residential courses at the Universities of Oxford, Reading, Newcastle-on-Tyne and Loughborough and the Brunei University, in respect of students from developing countries.

Mr. Wood

The only one-year residential courses for which the Overseas Development Administration normally pays both residence and tuition fees under overseas aid provisions are at Oxford and Loughborough. Total fees paid for the financial years 1968–69, 1969–70 and 1970–71 were: at Oxford—£4,125, £6,705 and £4,465; and at Loughborough—£14,245, £13,090 and £11,860.

It is possible that other courses may have been used on isolated occasions, but it would involve a great deal of work to make certain.
